With the big buzz yesterday of the new Apple i-phone coming in September having a fingerprint reader, what evidence do we have that Bio-key is involved? Apple bought Authentec. Authentec has partnered with Bio-key. Bio-key has been shown to be the best choice for other "large group" applications (FBI, Government of India, etc.). Is it a stretch to assume from this that we are involved? I don't think so. When will we find out? If we are involved, I would say we are in for a nice run-up in share price. Anybody know anything yet?

It sounds like Apple is having trouble integrating a sensor in the iPhone 5S, but a newly-discovered string of code makes it look like biometrics are certainly intended to be a part of the iOS 7 experience.
Perhaps the most tangible proof to date to confirm that the iPhone 5S will ship with a fingerprint sensor, a string of code found in iOS 7’s latest beta release describes a user touching the home button with their thumb and then being shown an image of a fingerprint on the screen that “changes colour during the setup process,” supposedly to confirm authentication.
